Today we were pleased to announce the winners of the 2023 Climate Action Awards, recognising climate action by Misean Cara members and communities on the frontlines of climate change. This year’s winners come from projects in Nigeria, India, and Zambia and were received by three Misean Cara members and their local partners: The Saint Patrick’s Missionary Society with the SELL Programme (Sharing Education and Learning for Life); the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Loreto) with the Kolkata Mary Ward Social Centre; and Edmund Rice Development with the Christian Brothers. Congratulations to our winners!

Misean Cara Climate Action Awards
Now in their fourth year, the Misean Cara Climate Action Awards are awarded to member projects and individuals who are actively involved in helping the communities hardest hit by the effects of climate change build economic and climate resilience by adopting sustainable farming methods, promoting cleaner fuels for cooking and heating, and nurturing against biodiversity loss.
Misean Cara is committed to recognising the heroic and innovative measures our members are taking to tackle the climate crisis head-on in the communities where they work and live. The Misean Cara Climate Action Awards were launched in 2020 to celebrate these projects and encourage more sustainable development activities by our members in the field.
